We had the privilege of attending the grand unveiling of the new $35 million terminal connector and security checkpoint at the Lehigh Valley International Airport on July 28. The event included remarks by several prominent figures including U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, Pennsylvania Governor Josh Shapiro, and Pennsylvania Congresswoman Susan Wild – pictured here along with our own Dr. Kathryn C. Worrilow, CEO and Founder of LifeAire Systems.
LifeAire’s air purification technology was installed in the new terminal – the first such installation in any airport worldwide.
Our Lehigh Valley community’s “get stuff done” attitude, as Governor Shapiro stated, shines through in this world-class construction initiative. Investing in infrastructure fosters economic opportunities and job creation, propelling our region forward. LifeAire is proudly established and headquartered in the Lehigh Valley.
“I do want to give another special shout out to the founder of LifeAire. You heard mentioned before that there is a very special air purification system here that was put in by LifeAire.”, said Representative Wild. “Kathryn founded LifeAire here in our district. It is women-founded, women-run. Their company has not only put the incredible filtration system in here, but also in our local hospitals and elsewhere. Really, just a crowning success for our community.”
The new terminal connector is set to officially open to the public in August 2023.
